Medical schools currently use specialist perspectives on psychiatric disorders to train physicians, nurses and health professionals. This results in a lack confidence among non-psychiatric health professionals, which reduces their ability to manage common mental health conditions in primary care and secondary hospitals. This book is a practical guide to common mental health conditions encountered in general medical practice.
